Vanity Explored     back

A. Discovery
you see inside my every move
there's nothing hidden now from you
...and i can see the treason
it's in my heart

looking at the one who made me
and the truth is found so plainly
life without you is all vanity
all my thoughts are from
vanity's prison
(for a life sentence)

and the world sees a fašade
on the inside filth and rot
appearance of a whitewashed tomb
yet inside filth and rot consume

...it pries my faith and reason
and soul apart
looking at the one who made me
and the truth is found so plainly
life without you is all vanity
a silent war is on
no escaping from
vanity's prison

B. Lamentations
see my heart
look into my eyes
you hear my groans
poor man, i am lost...
hear my call
listen to my cries
a prisoner,
you know that i am lost...

C. Reality
and I know just what I am
chasing after things of man
only you can set me free
we are restless till we rest in thee
and I know just who we are
with a void that's in our heart
under the sun is vanity
we are restless till we rest in thee
silent war is on
no escaping from
vanity's prison
